Totterdown is a suburb of Bristol, England, situated area just south of the River Avon and south-east of Temple Meads railway station. It rises relatively steeply from the river bank to a largely terraced Victorian housing area which is notable for its painted homes - often in bright colours - that can be seen from some distance. There is a tight network of extremely steep roads in eastern Totterdown, of which Vale Street, although very short, is alleged to be the steepest residential road in England. For safety cars can only be parked on it at an angle to the kerb.
Once mainly a working class area and built for the nearby railway industry, in the mid to late 19th century, Totterdown has become a popular area for the younger generation taking up work in the city centre.
